Sports Education

Back
The Physical Education Department provides sports education at every level of the English and French sections in our private school. Particular attention is paid to set up programmes which take into account the differences in strength and ability among students in our international school. While sports are a vital element in children's development, in complement to the more academic subjects, teachers endeavour to make them fun and aim to instill good practices inside and outside the school environment.
  • Description
Experienced and enthusiastic teachers, many of whom themselves take part in sports at competition level, alternate the more classical disciplines such as football and athletics with less well-known activities like ultimate frisbee or netball.

The students from the Maternelle and Primaire school follow a programme which introduces a wide range of activities geared to the discovery of their abilities in line with their physical development. Movement and games are the prime element in sports education, while mastering skills and techniques comes later and as a natural consequence of the first.

From the age of 11, the lessons given by our private school are designed for a more systematic approach leading students to explore various fields of physical education: endurance, team sports, and the techniques relating to specific movements in athletics and gymnastics. Teachers  continue to pay keen attention to fun and enjoyment which still remain key.

At primary level, most P.E. lessons take place in the gymnastics halls on campus or on the field nearby at our private school. From secondary level, many lessons are moved to outside halls and stadiums in order to take full advantage of more specialised facilities in Geneva.
